Ginkgo Biloba
Thunderchild Flowering Crab

The Ginkgo Biloba is regarded as one of the most distinctive and beautiful of all the deciduous trees, and has remained genetically unchanged for millions of years. Its beautifully fan-shaped leaves develop a clear yellow colour in fall. Graceful and attractive year-round, Ginkgo is the perfect conversation starter in your yard.

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.
